Is there a breakout thing for the USB connector? In your pics it seems to be located very low compared to other boards.
There is indeed!

Thanks. Did you have to solder these wires straight to the PCB yourself or did the bundle include another connector to attach them to?
The Revo & Dr.D TKL used a XH2.54 connector pair for the USB cable (pic here: https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=84328.msg2393839#msg2393839).

I had to solder them to the PCB. I had some issues at first since I first tried to solder them to the holes for what normally would be the USB connector, but then I realised there were some larger and labeled holes below it Stupid mistake, but it worked out it the end.

Thanks for these details. Maybe there will be room on the PCB to put of one those removable connectors.

It could be that these holes were actually meant for that, but TBH soldering on the connector was pretty easy once I knew how.

Well so much for getting any kind of update this week. At this point we really should have an eta for when to expect this board to be ready. Patients can only take you so far.

Yeah, you're right. They are sick and all, I'm sure they would need to break for a rest.

Sorry if I donít have a solid update for you I asked for update numerous times but EVE told me that he had to get some boards back for more polishing before anodizing. All I get were two pics of polished boards on floor and I didnít want to give this sh**ty update until I have better ones. But here it goes.

I know this is probably nothing. Iíll talk to EVE this week and ask for what exactly his plan is for the GB and let you guys know.

 Yep you were right definitely a  let down. I  along with many others I imagine , was hoping this project would be a little further along. Pretty much the same progress from two months ago , just laid out differently. I guess we can expect this in another couple months if we are lucky ..

Sadly, probably true. I'll be optimistic if we can get it by March/April.

no, it won't

each part has to be finished to fit a specific bottom, since the shape is so complicated

no moons can have case parts swapped, as far as i know

ahh, thanks puddsy. can always count on your snarky informitism

ok, fair enough... guessed as much. I'll probably still try once I've got both to see how much off it would be, but I won't be planning with it to work then ;)

i think the anodizing finish will also be noticably different, but you'll have to wait until it shows up to be sure

This should be good: anodizing is officially in process





I'm sorry to see one people decided to take a refund. I totally understand it, it's been dragged long. But I ask the rest of you guys to be patient as the end result for Mira SE turned out to be satisfying. EVE wouldn't let you down with the Moon.

Meanwhile I'll keep following up with EVE regularly. Wish I can be in factory 24/7 in person  :p

Any chance you will sell the spot zzjayfree?  I'd be interested if so.

I'll probably post the order when the anodizing is done. Nothing for certain for now.

Oh, man, those are beautiful. I just saw that BOX Navy switches are back in stock and ordered some of those to go in this baby. Good day of updates!
